The Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI) is seeking feedback from our report end-users, including Victorian public health service boards and executives, clinicians, consumers, VAHI’s advisory committees, Safer Care Victoria (SCV), and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), to inform the development of its 2018–19 reporting program.

A key focus of this consultation is on the refinement of our safety and quality measures. VAHI’s reporting program is prepared annually to identify measures to be included in its reports in the next financial year, as well as work to inform its longer term work program. This may include research and development for future performance measures, enhancements to VAHI’s current suite of reports and any new reports to be prepared.

These consultation papers have been prepared to guide stakeholder feedback. They provide background information about VAHI’s current reporting and seek stakeholder views on:

  • what safety and quality measures VAHI should be reporting to drive clinical improvement
  • how the current suite of reports could be improved (e.g. presentation of data, target audience and frequency).

There are two consultation papers, one for consumers and one for other audiences (e.g. Victorian public health service boards and executives, clinicians and representatives from SCV and DHHS). You are asked to review the paper that is applicable to you, and provide feedback either via the feedback forms, or alternatively via email directly to

Please note VAHI will also consult with the private hospital sector to incorporate their views, as part of the development of the first private hospital safety and quality report, which is due to be completed by the end of 2018.

Feedback is due by Monday 11 June 2018

Please contact Emma Lockwood at if you require any further information about this consultation process.

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to the consultation. We look forward to receiving your feedback. A summary of the results will be published on the Better safer care website in August 2018.
